What is the most unacceptable thing that society accepts as a cultural norm?
There are a lot of rituals in distinctive cultures that we keep following without even knowing the purpose of doing it and just because it has been done for ages.
One among those are the festivals that include sacrificing animals as a form of offerings to god.
Women are restricted to have a choice of clothes and are not given equal positions in some parts of the world.
In some Hindu cultures, people believe that by fasting we can impress God.
Apart from these, there can be many other practices that should be stopped.

Most religions teach us about the existence of a sovereign God - the creator of everything. Some religions teach us the way of life and the practical ways to handle life and people alike. The culture of a certain place can also be based in the set of beliefs and practices set by its religion. The early civilisations show us that people wondered about creation so they created images and worship them. Religion is placed in the hearts of men but the paradigm shift in culture has melted the faith in human's heart. You can name all religions you know while not being a follower of any devotion and it is still culturally acceptable.
